Good Stuff

The past couple of mornings I've been listening to one of my favorite bands, which I haven't listened to in a long time.  I forgot what a mood lifter their music can be.  I am a total music lover, and listen to everything from classical to punk to bluegrass to heavy metal.  I appreciate the effort behind the music.  Anyway, this particular band, "Old Crow Medicine Show" is an old-time, bluegrass, string band with a modern/punk edge.  Anyway, it's been a good pick-me-up this week, when I've been extremely tired. Check them out sometime if you like some variety in your music.


Today's WOD was a good old fashioned one, just basic body weight movements, and plenty of them. 
P.S.  I've really loved the programming this week.

5 Rounds for time of:

30 Sit-ups
20 Push-ups
10 Chest to bar pull-ups

My time: 19:39

Okay, so no "Rx" for me today.  I started out trying to do chest to bar pull ups, but the pull up bar was SO slick I was afraid I was going to fall, so I just did regular kipping pull ups.   I need to bring a file and rough up the bar a little bit.  I'm sure Breck wouldn't mind.  Ha ha!!  Anyway, I enjoyed this workout.  Tried to keep my form strict on push ups but realize I was probably sagging a tiny bit on the last twenty.

Strength today was front squats.  I'm not anywhere near the 95% we were supposed to be doing - this lift has me spooked after hurting my back, so I stayed at 85#.
